Gull At The Beach, 6x6 Inches, Oil

SOLD
This painting was pure joy to paint!  I painted on a black background, I used gridding to make sure the proportions of the gull were accurate.  I used more than my usual limited palette, to enhance the gorgeous color of the water in the background.  In other words, I had FUN!
A note about the 'surprise' I'm working on - I wiped it off twice - TWICE - today!  Not going to be defeated but will continue till it is good.. and will show you then..

  1. Love the composition and placement on this one Kelley. This gull has personality. Jonathan Livingston seagull? Do you remember that book?

  3. Love your seagull! Your blues are beautiful (as always!). I wonder what he is looking at. Probably another gang member (incognito, of course!) taking his picture from another angle. :-D

  4. You really nailed the way gulls stare at something. I thinks he's eyeing someone's beach bag so he can steal a snack when they go in the water!

  7. This is great Kelley. Very simple yet you captured that "puffed up" look those guys always seem to have! And the water is terrific.
